What post-accident chronic pain feels like

If you are seriously injured in a car accident, you could wind up suffering from chronic pain for months or even years after the crash. Some people have to deal with it for the rest of their lives. If you have a back or spine injury, for example, although it may technically heal, you may always have back pain when you wake up in the morning or physically exert yourself.

Why rollovers happen and how to avoid them

A rollover is not the most common kind of vehicle accident, but in terms of occupant fatalities and serious injuries, it maintains a disturbingly high ranking. Most rollovers occur on rural roads and at speeds in excess of 55 miles per hour. Not only do they account for 30% of all traffic fatalities, this kind of devasting crash is also the cause of very severe injuries. 

Lighting still needs to be safe, even when prioritizing the view

Preserving natural beauty is always something that has been important in Arizona. For instance, nearly 20 years ago, Flagstaff became the first International Dark Sky City in the world. This was done to try to reduce light pollution so that residents could observe an unobstructed view of the night sky, without the light pollution so common in other cities.

How safe are pickup trucks?

People often think of pickup trucks as very safe vehicles, perhaps because of their reputation as tough, rugged machines. They are tall and powerful. They have four-wheel drive. They tend to dwarf compact cars and hybrid vehicles. People who drive trucks every day -- even if they're just commuting or heading to the grocery store -- feel safe on the road.

Does a motorcycle helmet make it harder to see?

One reason that some riders are resistant to the idea of motorcycle helmets is that they worry that they won't be able to see as well to either side. They know how important their peripheral vision is, and they think that the helmet will restrict it unnecessarily. In this fashion, they actually think it's more dangerous to drive with a helmet on. Despite the protection it provides in a crash, they also believe it's going to make a crash far more likely, and they'd understandably like to avoid that situation.
